`Matru...` about land scam, but film`s tone not serious: Vishal Bhardwaj
Mumbai: ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ might be about the issue of land scam, but director Vishal Bhardwaj says the tone of the film is not at all serious.
"The film`s plot is based on the issue of land scam but I have not personalised this to anyone," the 52-year-old told reporters Monday at a press conference of the film.
"It has happened in every big state. We have just added a fun element to that serious issue in the film. So, the tone of the film is not serious but issues are very serious.
"It`s a satire, comedy. You can say it`s a political comedy," he added.
Releasing Jan 11, ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ also features Imran Khan, Anushka Sharma, Shabana Azmi and Pankaj Kapur.
